Following in the footsteps of the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy S7 Active has today been spotted on the GFXBench online database running Android 7.0, which indicates that Samsung is in the final stages of testing the long-awaited Nougat update for the handset.

That said, it is relatively easy to modify a unit’s model number to falsify benchmark results, but seeing as Samsung’s already rolled out a handful of beta builds for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge as part of its beta program, we’re pretty certain this is a genuine sighting.

Just like before, there’s no official word on when the firmware will start making the rounds. However, last week the South Korean company promised to do its best to release the official version of Android 7.1.1 for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge this month. It’s possible that the Galaxy S7 Active will receive it shortly after.
